Mother and daughter bring medical malpractice suit against clinic

When injured or ill, Maryland residents often seek the help of doctors and other medical professionals in order to receive accurate diagnoses, high-quality care and treatment; unfortunately, it may not always work out the way that they had planned.

Man mysteriously dies, widow files medical malpractice suit

An out-of-state man died after having gone through a non-emergency procedure and many medical experts are still deciding what killed him.

The heart has already been to three different states and covered over 1,000 miles in order to be studied by different pathologists. Maryland residents who have had a loved one die a mysterious death may not know that they are legally entitled to file a medical malpractice suit against the medical professional responsible.
